TACOMA, Washington – It has been three years since Puget Sound won the inaugural Northwest Conference Rowing Championship, but the Loggers are poised the reclaim the title when they host the league championships on American Lake in Lakewood, Washington, Sunday, April 22.
A dominant spring
Puget Sound earned three Northwest Conference Crew of the Week honors this spring. The WV8 earned the honor following both the Pacific Lutheran Invitational (March 10) and the Meyer/Lamberth Cup (March 24). The W2V8 was named the NWC Crew of the Week following the Husky Open (March 31).
Mills in the mix
Mills College, out of Oakland, California, joins the Northwest Conference for the first time this season. The Cyclones join Puget Sound, Lewis & Clark, Pacific, and Pacific Lutheran.
Following the women's races Sunday, men's boats will compete for the Rainier Cup on American Lake.
It's been a while
Puget Sound's last regatta was the Husky Open (March 31), since the Covered Bridge Regatta (April 7) was canceled due to high wins.
